The tense situation between the United States and Russia governments concerning Ukraine is a topic of much discussion in the media recently, including in today’s episode of the Ron Paul Institute’s daily video program.
Once you have watched that Ron Paul Liberty Report episode, a great next step for background information about the situation is Patrick J. Buchanan’s editorial “Putin to Biden: Finlandize Ukraine, or We Will.”
Buchanan’s editorial, published today, deals concisely with the current situation. It also provides historical context through discussion of actions of the US, Soviet Union, and Russia governments through the twentieth century. The editorial is a good complement to the Ron Paul Liberty Report episode that has much focus on Ukraine-related activities in the twenty-fist century. You can read Buchanan’s editorial here.
